Only (checks calendar) 4 days left till this nightmare ends and pubs re-open. I should also have received my Privilege Club edition of Sputnik V by then.
It might not work but it has the best font.
I’m nearing the end of my tether (not the separate one Mrs RM keeps me on), being told to enjoy the natural beauty of the Fens.
Having taken you to nearly all of Huntingdonshire, I’m examining the crumbs of comfort around Ely.
19 minutes to Stuntney,
via the newish A142 Ely bypass which allows trucks to avoid the low bridge in the cathedral city. Sadly, the bypass will see Stuntney deprived of its lone entry in the record books as the accidents come to an end.
It’s noticeable how many of those hot spots are in East Angular, isn’t it ?
Obviously I don’t arrive on a clear day. Where’s the fun in that.
Actually, the fog makes it’s all a little eerie, aided by the knowledge you’re surrounded by endless Fens and would never find your way to Soham if you got lost.
I check WhatPub, JUST in case there’s a pub I’ve missed. Nothing for miles.
And no sign of dead pubs either, which is always a shame as you know how I love complaining about folk who leave signs up when they convert pubs to houses.
It took 20 minutes to examine, in detail, every building in Stuntney (pop. 200). The pheasant on the thatch is the highlight.
But what’s this !
A Fenland Social Club. Surely they’ll have Greene King IPA and a hazy DIPA on during line dances ?
Sadly, the Facebook page is dormant and dull, and mainly concerned with bingo.
Perhaps this shed will be a thriving micropub when I return in 2030.
Dull dull dull. But when I got home, I scoured the Stuntney Facebook page, and found this... (20) Facebook
Press the link. I do hope it works.
